Faster processing. Better application performance. Do more work and do harder work. Do the work better and do the work faster. Use less power. Take up less space. Pay less to buy, pay less to program, and pay less to operate. These are the criteria for a successful high performance computing platform.
This article describes the implementation of a common DSP application, Spectrum Analysis, on the COTS WILDSTAR II for VME FPGA-based processing board with a 1.5 GHz A/D I/O card, using the CoreFire FPGA Design Suite.
